Baseball has been a fixture in Alice for more than 60 years and today offers seasonal competitions for men and women, boys and girls, from ages 4 and up.

Each Saturday afternoon, Bushrangers, Jets, Mavericks and Rebels battle it out in the ASBA MPH Little League Competition.  A round robin competition at the traditional home of Alice Springs Baseball – Lyle Kempster Field.

Numbers in the competition are burgeoning, as youngsters aged 9-12 hone their skills in one of the fast-growing junior sports in the community

Junior players from across the region are finding the joy in gloves, bases, bats, dirt, and the grass of the outfield

8CCC Community Radio’s Lindsay Ross takes a look at the competition at the mid-point of the 21/22 Season.
